Wow – in Oregon?! A lone reed….. A voice crying into the wilderness.

Oregon, there is hope for you yet! 😉

    I think this one is my new old favorite was ‘Don’t tell Obama what comes after a Trillion’

Don’t radical progressives think looting is a noble act? maybe that is why the residents of Eugene allow this car to remain unharmed.

I bet they like it, since Obama is Robin Hood – stealing from the Young and giving to the Rich.

    Obama is an ideological Robin Hood – looting and redistributing the loot according to his view of your worthiness (usefulness, complicity and commitment to his ideology and purposes.)

    Romney is a reverse Robin Hood – looting corporations and industries, even pension funds, taking from the poor to give to the rich, worthy fellow Bain executives and investors.

    The Washington Establishment are elitist Robin Hoods – looting for themselves and their supporters…and of course, some for their states, to make the party boyz back home look good.

      Oh, and entitlement programs are just more Robin Hoodism, alms and pittance to salve their consciences at the expense of the ‘middle’ ‘working class’ ‘bourgeois’ ‘drones’ who are expected to do their duty, carry their load without complaint.

It takes a pillage to raise a tax.

Great bumper sticker and great comments. Just when I am vexed and perplexed, a stop in a LI post puts it all in perspective! 🙂

“Looters” looks like an ad for a restaurant chain where all the waiters have big deficits.

I’d love to have that on a T-Shirt for my monthly visits to Santa Fe.

    Why, Sanddog? Is it something about Santa Fe? Or just the awesome coolness of the slogan?

    Whahahahaha. Santa Fe is soooo lefty libbylandia touchy feely spendy money and corrupty gov-y. I know, I live in Santa Fe.

      My husband is of the opinion that the only good thing about Santa Fe is NM-599. He has a point. Why leave the Hum only to travel to a place with a higher number of nuts?

As we recognize America’s “original compromise”, and the sacrifice of several hundred thousand lives to realize the assignment of universal dignity, let us reject dreams of instant gratification through redistributive and retributive change. Let us end the cycle of construction and destruction which they engender.

Our next moral imperative is not which but when dignity is assigned to human life. The current standard is arbitrary and even perverse. However, let us also recognize that a sustainable outcome will only be realized through the normalization of productive behaviors. Our cultural progress has been negative and must be reformed.
